Gardeners' Notes:

I don't know why this rose is classified as a HT, as it blooms in clusters like a Floribunda (for me at least...).
This is a great rose. Extremely generous with blooms, great fragrance, and perfect for a small arbor or trellis. Wonderful "quartered" effect. Great disease resistance.
In my zone, it starts out very dark peachy pink and fades to a soft pink. Best color in cooler weather, but does pretty well in summer heat as well.
Highly reccommended !

This rose is very hardy. It is just covered with huge roses. I call them antique pink. They are a light pink with a hint of mauve to them resembling cabbage roses. Just gorgeous.
